BOAGAN: Be Only As Geeky As Necessary

Well, this was the historic phrase from OPML Camp.

Adam Green had written it up in his Powerpoint-like outline of notes, as a bit of a caveat to speakers -- Be Only As Geeky As Necessary -- BOAGAN -- which was defined by everyone in the room rather differently.

We continually called people to the carpet for stepping OVER THE LINE from regular English to GEEKY-SPEAKY. Ultimately, the lines are impossible to draw, since the stuff is pretty darned geeky, but mostly the geekiness was left at the door.
